At the Thursday morning Mass at St. Augustine’s we are often joined by people from Ebury Lodge a local Rest Home. It is always a pleasure to see them and they usually stay for refreshments afterwards. After Mass this morning I had the pleasure of taking Home Communion to a couple who have not been well lately. I was able to offer them the Laying-on-of-Hands with Prayer. It is a great privilege to be able to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and to take the Body of Our Blessed Lord to those who are sick and housebound. It is one of the great joys of priesthood to be able to offer this ministry and one that I have missed since I retired.
